IS SMA a good brand? Are their inverters any good?

Yes. They are a German company who are regarded as the #1 Solar Inverter company in the world. Solar Run recommends the SMA when quality is the most important consideration. With more than half a million inverters installed in Australia you should definitely consider an SMA Inverter. SMA Australia is based in Sydney, NSW.

The SMA Sunny Boy Inverter is recognised as providing high performance and a great range of features.

If you are looking for a high end solar power system and want the best then you will be looking at SMA.

When you want the best inverter for Australian conditions.

All of their inverters are clean energy council approved. Widely sold in Australia the SMA Sunny Boy 5.0 is a market leading inverter.

When you have problems with shading on your roof.

If your house has issues with shading you might consider panel optimisers. Combined with Half Cell solar panels and inverters, optimisers reduce the impact of shading. This means that if a single panel is shaded it does not affect the overall system. If you have problems with shading on your roof top consider the SMA TS4-R.

When you need an affordable Inverter

If you are prioritising affordability over performance then SMA solar inverter is not for you. Their inverters provide higher performance and many features but this comes at a higher cost.

When you are considering adding battery storage to your solar system.

SMA provides “Battery Inverters” which sit alongside you “Solar Inverter”. While other manufacturers offer “Hybrid” options that combine both roles, the combination of 2 different SMA inverters are a great choice if you are considering adding energy storage or claiming feed in tariffs. If you want to add a battery consider adding a SUNNY ISLAND 4.4M

When you need a inverter manufacturer that can back the warranty.

While there are no guarantees, SMA is one of the largest inverter manufacturers in the world. The SMA warranty is as good or better than other leading brands.
